The dream of a father

On a hot summer day in June 2011, Steven van Bommel, father of two daughters came home one day from a long day of work. Van Bommel had been producing plastic toys for the past few years and was busy on the promotional activity of it. He grew up in a family business, where he started working as a young boy in 1986. In the year 2000, after 14 years of hard work, he took over the company from his father who retired. At that time, the company was going through a turbulent time. The two daughters were always interested in the activities of their father. The youngest of the two asked that evening why her father still made toys in the far east from normal plastic. She told her father that the current products were harming the environment around him and that of the next generation. At school that same day she learned that plastic is for the most part made of petroleum. Petroleum is a scarce raw material that causes enormous damage to the environment. The productions of these plastics results in high CO2 emissions.

It was at this moment that Van Bommel realized that things could and should be done differently. The daughter had unknowingly opened his eyes that evening. He really wanted his production to add something to society. It was time to make some drastic changes in the company. Van Bommel’s dream from now on was to make products that are safe and do not damage the environment in which we live. The following day it was decided that all accumulated reserves should go to this new project. All current investments and projects were stopped. It was the day that BiOBUDDi was born, even though it took some time before it actually came to life.

Build a better tomorrow!

Building a better tomorrow that is BiOBUDDi’s vision. We like to do this together with our customers. It is crucial that commercial parties take responsibility. We take this responsibility by making sustainable products, but we want to do more. Our interest is not only to make a profit, but the interest is much greater. For this reason, BiOBUDDi supports the Plant-for-the-Planet foundation.

What does BiOBUDDi do in concrete terms?

  • We support Plant-for-the-Planet with planting trees in various places worldwide.
  • Part of every BiOBUDDi box sold goes to our own Plant-for-the-Planet fund.
  • Every year on March 18 (Tree Party Day) we pay extra attention to the fund.
  • Very soon we will be keeping track of which projects we support and how many trees we have planted on our website.
  • BiOBUDDi has set itself the goal of planting 50,000 trees within 3 years. Will you help us?
